Our current understanding of the processes involved in the biosynthetic route of membrane proteins, from their site of synthesis, the rough ER to the plasma membrane owes a great deal to the use of model viral membrane proteins as tools. The three most popular proteins in this respect have been the G protein of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), the haemagglutinin (HA) of influenza virus and the spike proteins of Semliki Forest virus (SFV) (see Simons and Warren, 1984).
